CITIES: NA­TURE’S NEW WILD | BBC2 9PM

Inside Soap - - INSIDE TV -

In the fi­nal episode of this beau­ti­fully shot se­ries re­veal­ing how wildlife is adapt­ing to the fastest-chang­ing habi­tat on the planet, we see how naughty mon­keys in Costa Rica are be­ing fu­elled – lit­er­ally – by tourists. Over in New York, there’s a grow­ing pres­ence of hump­back whales at New York’s beaches. In Am­s­ter­dam, grey herons are off to the fish mar­ket be­fore it closes at 5pm. And while it’s tempt­ing to think of Del Boy flog­ging a floun­der to a dif­fer­ent type of bird than he’s used to, there’s a se­ri­ous side to all this – wildlife num­bers are said to have halved in the past 40 years. Sober­ing stuff.
